Cartoon Network launches an animated half-hour comedy series Camp Lazlo, an Indianised version of a wacky monkey's romp through a highly structured summer home, this Sunday.
The first instalment will be premiered this Sunday at 9:30 a.m.
"Kids love adventure. CampLazlo is sure to rivet kids to their seats every Sunday through its distinctive characters, comic situations and enjoyable story-plots," Vishnu Athreya, senior programming manager, Cartoon Network, India and South Asia, said in a statement.
"With Camp Lazlo, we will be looking at strengthening our existing rock-solid line up, which boasts the Indian production of Akbar &Birbal, and other classics including Tom & Jerry and Baby Looney Tunes".
Camp Lazlo has been given an Indian look with Indian nuances and touches to each of the characters besides voicing by Indian artistes.
In the Indian version, Lazlo is a natural-born non-conformist who joins the camp from Mumbai. His attitude is very much that of a Mumbai schoolboy, with a great imagination and optimistic spirit.
He lives in Jelly Cabin with his pals and co-conspirators Raj, a reluctant, compulsive Indian elephant, and Clam - an eccentric, misfit, genius, albino South Indian pygmy rhino.
